Ascend Events is a small, family run, grass roots race organiser. We're delighted that we've achieved our aim of sharing our passion for endurance events, the great outdoors and the Lake District with others and take pride in enabling participants to do more than they had before.
We've been organising our great value, fun and friendly events for a few years now... and it's gone far faster than we can run! Our original challenges now sell out, so we've added 2 new events for 2020. If these prove to be as popular we might just extend our calendar further, and possibly even add more locations...
We took some popular long distance walking routes that had fallen in to disuse and relaunched them. They're tough. They're challenging. They're technical. We don't mark the routes (much) so require map reading and navigational skills. But this just adds to the sense of achievement when you finish.
We do provide timing, comprehensive route description and a huge selection of food. We give all the support needed to surpass your own expectations and complete our events and have the best time doing it. Then at the end we provide a proper hot meal, dessert and a bespoke medal for all finishers.
We want our events to be accessible to participants of all levels. Walkers and runners are both not only accepted but very welcome at all our events. If you have any concerns about your abilities send us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org and we try to alleviate any doubts.
